Access Issue: Donner/Truckee area Details


Like a (very) poor man's On the Lamb, this dirty, gently rising crack traverse is pretty fun although brief in length. A bit of featured slab gains entry to the left side start where protection is easily had. Midway the protection thins out for a few moves until you get a couple of solid pieces. The end of this horizontal crack leads into the finish of the Undercling Thing's real climbing. All in all, probably 25' of business followed by an anchor scramble.

From there, either head up or climber's right and around to access the anchors.

I'm calling this The Unknown Phantom because this climb is not featured in any of the guidebooks I have available for the area (both old and new Carville guides, and the new North Tahoe book). If you know the FA information, let me know so I can change the description, I am sure it has been led or free soloed before. This climb is definitely a fun, albeit overlooked diversion while in the area and a few more parties on it might clean up the mossy placements!


The crack that gently diagonals up and right, 25' left from the start of the Undercling Thing.


Small to 3" cams. There is a bonus #1 camalot placement in a downward facing pocket as well. Pro appears solid, although the rock is a bit grainy and mossy inside the crack. Bolted anchors shared with Undercling Thing.
